"إن كثيراً من النقاش الذي يدور حول الإدارة هو نقاش لفظي عقيم. لا يهم أن تكون الإدارة علماً أو فناً، فالفرق بين العلم والفن مسألة تتعلق بالتعريف أكثر من تعلقها بالجوهر. ولا يهم أن يولد الإنسان إدارياً، أو يكتسب المقدرة الإدارية من التجربة، فما يعنينا هو النتيجة النهائية. ولا يهم أن يكون الإداري واسع الثقافة أو متوسطها، فالموضوع لا يبدأ وينتهي بالثقافة. ولا يهم أن يكون الإدا ...more

This is my book from Saudi Arabia for the Read The World challenge. I was looking for Saudi novels, and found Algosaibi because, as well as being a government minister and then ambassador, he wrote poetry and novels; one of which, An Apartment Called Freedom, was translated into English. What intrigued me enough to buy this memoir is that some of his books were banned in Saudi Arabia, including An Apartment Called Freedom — which was published while he was the Saudi ambassador to the UK and Irel ...more

The guy who held 4 ministries tells his story. The king loved him, but one day he criticized the king publicly imitating his role model, almutanabi, so he got fired. He was then appointed as ambassador of Saudi Arabia in Bahrain then London.

After the book was published he held the ministry of Labor before passing away in 2010.

Few things I have enjoyed about this book, besides the good examples and real life situations he has offered in a different perspective, I feel like he has given an excellent image of the Saudi ruling family. I must admit, almost through all my studies dealing with the gulf, i have always been given a negative view of the ruling family of Saudi. One of my well-known professors made us watched a documentary in this regard and she was featured in it - I don't say it has changed my opinion complete ...more
